Weekend Rewind: Revisit Knife Party’s Halloween-themed Diplo & Friends Mix from 2015
Halloween weekend is in full swing, and who better to celebrate this haunting time than with Australian electro/bass stalwarts Knife Party? Back in 2015, Diplo teamed up with Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen for a Halloween-themed Diplo and Friends mix as the pair were amid the lead up to their Trigger Warning EP which came shortly after. On the mix, the “Internet Friends” duo unveiled two new tracks: “Parliament Funk” and “Kraken.” The track list is weaved together with tunes from DallasK, Oliver Heldens, Tommy Trash and more.
Spanning the group’s entire catalog, from their almost-satiric Abandon Ship LP with “Begin Again,” to beloved Knife Party classics like “Rage Valley,” the hour long session is a highlight reel of Knife Party hits, including additional featured contributions from GTA, Yellow Claw, Skrillex, and JAUZ.
